These chairs, sold as leather are really pretty fake, the so called surface is sort of spayed on and does not tolerate the heat, there is some old ugly looking leather underneath. The finish was so thin it just peeled off. BUT they were too comfy to throw out so they have been in my outdoor area for ages. Yesterday they got some new seat covers to freshen them up! Two different styles but that's ok they are out side. Had the fabric for ages, so tick to using up the stash. Whoops should have moved the bin.. ha ha !
